Driade is an Italian company that has been producing design since 1968 and among its most iconic products are the Roly Poly and Nemo chairs, which stand out for their unique style and high quality.
But let's take a step back and find out more about this company. Driade was born in 1968, from a family intuition of the Astori brothers, Enrico and Antonia and Adelaide Acerbi Astori.
The search for beauty and uniqueness over the years has led to an exponential growth of this company in the world of design and furnishings, thus becoming a point of reference in the choice of furniture for the home, garden and collective spaces.
And just as furniture creates atmosphere and harmony, so does lighting.
In fact, these two worlds pursue the same goal, they are two complementary sectors and contribute to making your projects a reality. Driade is therefore a company that has been able to interpret current trends and translate them into unique and original products, without ever forgetting quality and durability.
Roly Poly, Driade
The Roly Poly chair was created in 2014 and is a chair with a rolled up and voluptuous shape, inspired by motherhood. Its rounded and enveloping shape makes it perfect for creating a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere. To increase this sensation, you could also think about combining it with brightly colored cushions or a soft fabric blanket.
Roly Poly is therefore a monobloc, made up of a welcoming seat and cylindrical legs, which give it a solid appearance, available in the colours: black, red, brick, concrete, pink, yellow, ochre, charcoal and peat.
Speaking instead of the materials, the chair is made of polyethylene, a resistant and light material, and for this reason it can be used both indoors and outdoors. In fact, Roly Poly is resistant to atmospheric agents, sunlight and rain, which makes it perfect for decorating the garden or terrace, but also for decorating a lounge bar or restaurant with an informal style.
Precisely for these reasons Roly Poly is a versatile chair suitable for any context, it capture attention and thanks to the high quality of production, it guarantees use for many years without losing its beauty and functionality.
Nemo on the other hand is presented by Fabio Novembre for Driade for the first time during the Salone del Mobile 2010, and immediately becomes a design icon. The shapes of Nemo enhance the human figure, as it depicts a face where the seat is hidden inside.
Indeed, Fabio Novembre takes inspiration for Nemo from the statues of ancient Greece and the name "Nemo" becomes a mask used to hide his identity. The chair is then made of polyethylene and is available in various bright colors that make it perfect for decorating youthful and fun settings: white, black, red and gray or painted in red, black and denim.
You can then choose the fixed version, ideal for both indoor and outdoor settings, or the 360° rotating version, for indoor use only. The Nemo chair is also resistant to knocks and scratches, which makes it perfect for the busiest settings such as restaurants, bars and hotels or to create an original and fun atmosphere in a clothing store. Furthermore, its original shape makes it a real visual attraction that does not go unnoticed.
In conclusion Roly Poly and Nemo are chairs that attract attention and are able to transform the setting in a surprising way. Furthermore, their high manufacturing quality ensures that these chairs can be used for many years without losing their beauty and functionality.
